October 9th to 13th
The water levels came up some during the week and temperatures were approximately 24°C.
With temperatures averaging around 29°C conditions were warm and pleasant and a couple of nights of rain helped make the fish more active.
A group of experienced anglers were able to make to most of the good conditions that were had throughout the week and all were able to land arapaima, along with good numbers of arowana of which over forty were landed. Without a doubt the highlight of the week was a huge 237 cm giant which so far is the biggest fish of the season.

Total number of fish landed during the week: 92
